Aldrei fór ég suður or ‘’I never went South’’ festival is open for everyone to join and free of charges, yes, you heard right, it is free! This highly supported festival is held in Ísafjörður the capital of the WestFjords, where local artists come to perform and put a joyful light over the city. This project was created in 2003 after a conversation between a father and son, they wanted to put a spotlight on local musicians, both established and up-coming Icelandic bands and solo musicians. Aldrei fór ég suður is referred to the tendency for performers to head South to Reykjavík in order to find their success. Very family-friendly, eclectic and unpredictable festival.
